“At one place I’ve been, they have lettuce wraps. The first time I went there, they were recommended. They gave me the fresh lettuce that you put the filling in and cover it with a plum sauce. I thought the filling was vegetables. Come to find out it was pigeon. I’m not comfortable eating pigeon. I grew up with them in New York…they don’t look good.”
